Do you have clearly specified Maintenance & Repair contracts?  If not, how do you know what you’re paying for?

Maintenance specifications are the guidelines and requirements set out by manufacturers or industry standards to ensure the proper care and upkeep of a particular system equipment.  These specifications outline the recommended procedures, intervals, and tasks to be performed to maintain the item in optimal condition, prevent potential failures or malfunctions, and extend its lifespan.

The specifications typically include the following:-

  1. The Maintenance Schedule – The frequency at which maintenance activities should be conducted.
  2. Inspection Procedures – These detail the steps to be followed when inspecting the item.
  3. Cleaning and Maintenance Tasks – Clarifies the specific tasks required to clean, maintain, and service the item.
  4. Replacement Parts – This section provides information about the recommended spare parts and the procedure for replacing them when necessary.
  5. Safety Considerations – Maintenance specifications often emphasise safety precautions to be taken during maintenance activities.
  6. Documentation and Record-keeping – Manufacturers often advise keeping records of maintenance activities, such as dates, tasks performed, parts replaced, and any issues identified.

Maintenance specifications are crucial for ensuring the reliability, safety, and longevity of products and systems.  Do you have clear Maintenance & Repair specifications in your service contracts?  If not, make an enquiry with Sunrise Facilities Management via enquiries@sunrisefacilitiesmanagement.co.uk and we’ll ensure you’re getting exactly what you’re paying for.
